Behold, the Cat Organist!
For those of you tired of the old school, outdated version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, get ready for a breath of fresh air. There’s a new instrument in town that’s guaranteed to get your fists pumping, your heart soaring, and your brain all kinds of confused: the Cat Organ.
This video, originally uploaded to YouTube on March 4th, 2012, has gained a solid 350,000 views. The content is an original outtake of actual BBC footage for God only knows what type of late night special that they aired. But the questions that remain are both simple and perplexing: Who is this man? Where did he foster such talent? How did he discover said Cat Organ? Is he an amateur, or is this his profession? Can one make a living on such a profession? And most importantly, where on earth did this man acquire all of these stuffed animal cats?
It seems these questions may go unanswered, but there’s one thing that’s for sure: I have never heard a more soothing interpretation of a lullaby in my life.
